Solid tripod for a DSLR

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod to use with my Canon 7D after I'd used my friend's equipment with the same setup. I like that it's not cheaply made. It's solid and sturdy without being too heavy, and the head has fairly good movement. It was in the price range I was looking for, and it serves my purposes well.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Professional Quality, Sturdy

Do not love it.. very heavy

26 August 2014
  • Excerpt: It worked OK but very heavy but was study. To extend the legs one would have to turn many of the screw type of tighten-ers. One can't tell if he has used enough force. So it's a unsure struggle to secure the legs in or out...These knobs are just waiting to fail. Always a poor design. I know from much personal experience. It was solid and did the job but I had to return it. I did not fall in love with it at all. Looks kind of old school in design.
  • Cons: Poor Design, Poor Performance, Pricey / Poor Value

Good but difficult to figure out

NMM, B&H Photo
26 August 2014
  • Excerpt: The head is pretty fliud, however it doesn't seem to lock in place in terms of panning and it spins pretty freely. Trying to figure it out but being that I've been using tripods for 8+ years I don't think it should be this difficult.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lacks Functionality, Poor Design

Second purchase of this product!

  • Excerpt: Versatile, easy to use, very smooth. I bought this head and tripod years ago and loved it. During our last move, the spring clamp on the head was broken when our gorilla movers got their hands on it.... I didn't hesitate to get the exact same head to replace the broken one. Well worth the extra $$$.

Great video head for the price

  • Excerpt: I've had one of these heads for about 5 years until it broke due to mishandling. I immediately replaced it with the exact same one. This head goes with my travel tripod, which ends up getting far more use than my Sachtler Ace-M because of how much easier it is to carry around with me.There are obvious deficiencies when you compare a $[*] head to one costing hundreds of dollars - it can't support much more than an SLR w/ a moderately heavy lens, and it is definitely...
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion

Sturdy but Smooth for Video Shoots

Cartouche, B&H Photo
7 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I recommend wholeheartedly this tripod. It's sturdy, very strong joints yet light and flexible. The head feels like a fluid head, makes smooth pans. The only think is it's height. You can't spread its legs much if you want your head to be higher than 6 feet, and at that height it starts to feel wobbly a little. I like to travel light and I feel good that this tripod will perform well.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Sturdy, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Short
